Molly’s Ice Bucket Challenge

Yesterday, Molly completed the Ice Bucket Challenge, with the assistance of some very enthusiastic Cranbourne Carlisle children!

The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS or MND Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised an impressive amount of money and awareness for motor neuron diseases around the world.

Immunisation

As part of enrolling in any Victorian government primary school, or transferring between schools, you need to show your child’s immunisation status certificate to the school. Children who are not immunised can still attend school but they must present an immunisation status certificate.

The Child History Statement from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register may be used, but is only valid if it contains the statement ‘this child has received all vaccines required by 5 years of age’.

If an outbreak of an infectious disease occurs at the school, children who have not been immunised or for whom we have no documentation will be sent home until the danger has passed.

Michelle Streat will be in touch with all families of children who have not submitted an immunisation status certificate, or whose immunisation statement is incomplete. If you are contacted, please ensure that you quickly provide complete certificates so that we may adequately protect all children in our care.
